The Home Brew Competition is Back!

Posted Jun 4, 2015 in Event News

HomeBrewPosterIt’s beer fest planning time, so that means it’s time for home brewers to start doing their thing in preparation for the 3rd Annual Mellow Mushroom Home Brew Competition, hosted by the Rome Beer Festival.

We’ll have 3 categories this year: IPAs, Ambers, and Stouts & Porters. The winner of each category will receive a $100 RACA grant to assist with productions for future brews, courtesy of our generous sponsor, Mellow Mushroom in Rome. They’ll also receive some beer-themed goodies, courtesy of our beer distributors.

You can submit up to three different brews by delivering the registration form (one for each brew), a $15 registration fee per brew, and two bottles of each brew to Mellow Mushroom, located at 238 Broad St. in downtown Rome. Competitors can submit their brews Monday, August 31st – Friday, September 4th, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.

The winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded at this year’s beer festival on Saturday, September 12th. If you’re unable to attend, no worries! You will be able to pick up your prizes at Mellow Mushroom during the following week.
